Film: Trash-Mex’s Cinco de Mayo: LA BRUJA (1954) – Mexican Horror Classic!

May 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Trash-Mex and The Philosophical Research Society celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a rare screening of an atmospheric and underseen Mexican horror classic – LA BRUJA!

Written by genre film legend Alfredo Salazar, LA BRUJA (1954) follows a witch who becomes a vehicle for revenge after being transformed into a seductive millionaire. A dark twist on the Pygmalion story, LA BRUJA is saturated with revenge, the toxic burden of beauty, and passionate cinematic quotes from Fritz Lang’s M. Emotional misery, issues of self-worth, and an organized underworld of outcasts drench the tainted heart of this gothic creepshow from Mexico.

Rarely screened and ripe for discovery, director Chano Urueta’s melodramatic and macabre LA BRUJA is a must see for lovers of witchcraft cinema, 50s arthouse horror, and classic Mexican cinema.
